The Power of the 15 Minute Time Segment – How to Start a Project
How to Start a Project
When the kids were in pre-school, I learned an important lesson from their pre-school teachers. The power of the 15 minute time segment – it is amazing what can be done when the time limit is a concise 15 minutes. I use that lesson each day when accomplishing my own daily tasks as well as when I work with clients. Do you want to know the secret of how to start a project? Set a 15 minute time limit and get going! Here are a few examples of what can be done in 15 minutes, or less, or in a series of 15 minute time blocks.
I recently found these items that the kids no longer wanted.
Writing a blog
A blog typically takes me three 15 minute time blocks.
Two 15 minute time blocks gives me a great workout!
A daily activity for me that takes less than 15 minutes.
Truth moment…I usually only do this every few weeks. 🙂 This pile will be filed by the end of the week.
I do this at the end of each day.
The kids are in charge of this one.
I like to take care of this one first thing in the am.
I do this the night before.
Catching up with a friend/family member on the phone
I am not much of a phone person – 15 minutes is about all you get!
I find that once I set my timer and get started, it is easier to keep going!
